Thanks for those most excellent recommendations bkidwell,I listened to both pieces and enjoyed them very much.I got a taste of the dynamics that you had mentioned in how some pieces swell and fade for texture.The Webern pieces started out atmospheric,moved into a relaxed discord and at about 3 minutes in had a very Asian feel which turned to a sci-fi movie meltdown,it had a lot going on for fairly quiet,not dense music.The pianist for the Ligeti piece was impressive to watch,it was very interesting how the open was this joyful yet gloomy music all at once,actually throughout the piece it sounded like he was playing separate pieces with each hand.The music had a tumbling feel,a sense of movement,I enjoyed when it got creepy and foreboding,a beautiful fluidity.At the finish his furious playing created a sort of piano feedback which was special,I did not know someone could do that.
